  • "Smooth crossing"

    The road to the ferry port was well displayed and the crossing went smootlhy in the nice weather. We had made a mistake when booking which they sorted easily at the port. It was not possible to reach the call centre in the morning however.

Rio Marina Guide

On the Italian island of Elba is the town of Rio Marina which is located in the Province of Livorno, in the Tuscany Region of Italy. The area was first inhabited in the 15th century although the town didn't really begin to grow until the 18th century, following a decline in pirate activity in the area. The town itself lies on a small inlet in the eastern side of Elba, and is surrounded by hills of red earth due to the iron oxide mining that took place there in the past. Today, the town is very much a tourist resort that has a reputation for looking after its guests. The Church of San Rocco is a popular attraction in the town as is the tower in the port which was commissioned by Giacomo V Appiano in 1534. The tower has an octagonal base and was a lookout and defensive structure. Also on the island is the Mineral Park.

A ferry service operates from the town's port to Pianosa and Piombino.
